Overview and Installation
The Command Line Interface (CLI) is a unified tool that provides a consistent interface for interacting with remote.it on a given device. CLI commands are covered in the next page including descriptions, syntax, and usage examples.
The remote.it Command Line Interface (CLI) is installed as part of the Desktop Application as well as the remote.it packages for various Linux distributions. This set of instructions is to install the CLI as a stand alone where the desktop application is not needed.
The remote.it CLI has slightly different behavior if you are running as a root user versus a non-root user. In general, you will want to always run as a root user.
    On Windows, you will need to open a "Command Prompt" as an Administrator and replace any example you see as sudo remoteit by remoteit.exe
    On Mac and Linux, you must run any commands related to creating/managing a Device or Services as a root user (e.g. sudo)
